Have you ever taken a spiritual retreat? I’ve heard about weekend retreats before and have only been to one up until this past weekend.  I can say with all honesty, it changed me. Life can wear us down. A busy schedule, a list of demands and no down time can lead to burn out and … Continue reading

Colorado Massacre News Exposes Evil with Pain and Grief

I don’t know about others, but I’m sick of all the news publicity this Colorado killer is getting in the media lately.

Inspiration found in a worn out picture frame

It sat on the mantle for years. Dust began to cover the image while the memories of that day was soon to fade away. It was an old, worn out picture frame that captured my heart.
